Updated 5:41pm Thursday 3rd April 2014 in News
A family has paid tribute to a man described as a "lovely son and brother" after he was killed while riding his motorbike on Sunday.
Sussex Police named Oliver Bird, 37, from Beach Road, Shoreham today.
He died at the scene on the A29 near Arundel after his black Kawasaki was in collision with a blue Audi A4, driven by a 69-year-old woman from Pulborough, on Sunday.
In a tribute issued on Thursday, his family said: "Words cannot express the grief and sorrow we feel for the loss of our lovely son and brother. He was kind, generous to a fault and very popular with everyone, young and old. He will be sorely missed.
"He was a very experienced motorcyclist as well as PADI scuba diver, kayak-er, sailor and skier who also loved fishing off the coast near his home in Shoreham.
"Ollie served as cabin crew for Thomas Cook airlines for 10 years. He loved travelling to foreign places and experiencing other cultures."
Sergeant Rob Baldwin, of the Sussex Road Policing Unit, said: "I would urge any witness we have not yet spoken with to contact us.
"We would particularly like to talk to a group of motorcyclists who were travelling northbound on the A29 at Bury just before the collision occurred and who I believe would have seen what happened."
Please call Sussex Police on 101 or email firstname.lastname@example.org quoting Operation Guardian.
